Goldman slashes rating on Netflix and eBay to sell on caution around U.S. consumer

In a note on the internet sector, Goldman Sachs downgraded several stocks, moving Netflix (NAS:NFLX) , eBay (NAS:EBAY) , Roblox (NYS:RBLX) and Frontdoor (NAS:FTDR) to sell from neutral and GoodRx Holdings (NAS:GDRX) to neutral from buy. Analysts led by Eric Sheridan say they have concerns around the impact of a consumer recession and heightened levels of competition on Netflix, say there are increasing concerns about the post-pandemic environment for Roblox, see eBay's forward GMV and revenue growth at risk, and believe the investor debates around inflation in the home services space to remain a headwind for Frontdoor. More broadly, the analysts say there have been a number of data points that give it increased caution around the U.S. consumer and overall macroeconomic environment.
